“Great place for a family/friends get together”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2011

Best location - walk to beach; walk to shops; walk to restaurants; walk around this charming town. Wonderful porches - one enclosed for privacy & one open facing street. The tour trollies all stopped for pictures - great fun. House is dated but very well equipped; clean as a whistle and neat as a pin (pardon the cliches). Our host, Sally, was gracious and informative AND not intrusive. Our party of nine enjoyed a week at the Ashley Rose and loved our accommodations and the town.

We rented the Inlet Cottage behind the main house for a week. It's a perfect little getaway from home. The eat in kitchen had everything we needed (except the food, which he brought). The bathroom has a washer and dryer which was great to have on hand so we didn't have to worry about dirty laundry or getting to a laundramat. There are outdoor showers with hot and cold water which was great for showering off the sand when returning from a day at the beach, with tracking it into the house or getting it in the bathroom. The bedroom is upstairs with a king size bed and a walk out to a deck. While there isn't much to see from the deck but the back of the main house and yard, it was nice to have to enjoy a cup of morning coffee or admire the full moon enjoying a glass of wine. The bathroom shower is a little small (and I'm petite), but not a problem. There is a pull out sofabed in the living room if you had overnight guests. As it is a summer cottage, you need to bring your own sheets and towels, but that is fine. Pillows, blankets, comforter are provided. Upon arriving, it was very clean. During our stay, we treated it like we would our own home and kept up with cleaning and anything we used up, we replenished (such as toilet paper, paper towels, dish or laundry detergent) for the next tenants. I don't know if that's customary, but we did it anyway, as well as washing dishtowels, bath mat and tablecloth that were provided. We enjoyed out stay immensely and had no problems, no complaints. There are outdoor grills and eating areas which we were permitted to use and there were beach chairs and badges which were also provided and appreciated. We met Sally during out weeklong stay twice and she was friendly and personable. We were set up well and didn't have to ask anything of her, but I'm fairly confident that if we needed anything, she would have accommodated us. There was a cold front that came in towards the end of our week and Sally told us where the heaters could be located if needed, but they weren't. We will definitely come back again next year and I look forward to it. If we can get the interest and cooperation of extended family, we would like to rent out the main house for a reunion in the future. The location is perfect, two blocks from the ocean and only several blocks walking distance to almost anything in town, including Washington Mall, plenty of restaurants, show houses/mansion tours, etc. We didn't want to leave.

My husband and I stayed at the Ashley Rose Victorian Inn and were delighted with the cleanliness, warmth and feeling of our cottage. We felt at home right away. The house provided lots of space, bike racks, grills, patios an outside shower and lots of privacy. It was only a short walk from the beach and located in a beautiful area. It was a perfect stay and we would highly recommend Ashley Rose. The owner is wonderful and truly cares about the property.
It's a beautiful house in a beautiful town.

After searching for a location for our extended family for Christmas, we stumbled upon the Ashley Rose Victorian Inn in Cape May. What a find! A former B&B turned inn, this was the perfect retreat for our family of 9. With 7 bedrooms, a dining room table that could seat an army, large living room and fireplaces, the Ashley Rose was exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our Christmas away. In a perfect location within walking distance to the beach and shops, the Ashley Rose would work for families year round. Sally, the owner had the house decorated for us and put up a lovely tree. I'm a travel consultant and do hotel site inspections regularly, so I'm always very critical in my reviews. Sally keeps this house looking beautiful and extremely clean. My family was thrilled with our Christmas stay and I would highly recommend the Ashely Rose to anyone with a large family seeking to rent an inn.

This is the second year in a row we have stayed in the cottage behind the main house. It's a little small, but it's perfect for our family of three. It's well stocked, has everything we need for our "home away from home." The one thing I appreciate most about this place is that it is CLEAN, 100% CLEAN from top to bottom!! That's the main reason we returned this year and plan to again next year. It's in a perfect location, you can literally park your car and not have to move it until you leave. The beach, shopping, restaurants, bike rentals, arcade, mini-golf, etc. is all within a very short walking distance.
I noticed someone stating a negative about the motion-sensitive lights during the night. These lights worked perfect for us. While coming home from shopping in the evening, it was nice to have these lights turn on automatically when you reach the back porch. And there's both blinds and heavy curtains to close at the windows, no light shines through at all.
As for not getting to use the main porch, I totally understand that this porch is reserved for the main house guests. There's a porch out back and an endless list of places to relax in Cape May so....so what!!

I have stayed at the Ashley Rose for 10 days for the last 2 summers. I found the apartments clean, comfortable, well stocked and pleasant. The amenities are not luxurious, but simple and what one expects of a beach vacation: nice outdoor showers, communal grills, bike racks and outdoor deck/patio. The location is perfect as it is within 3 blocks of the beach and the downtown area, but quiet and private. Sally has always been accessible and accomodating and I recommend this place to others.

Clean, cozy, cute, and convenient! The Ashley Rose Cottage was perfect for my small family. The accommodations were well kept, and the short stroll to the ocean manageable, even with my three year old. We enjoyed the sweet decor, outdoor showers, the grill, and the deck to full advantage. The central location - between the walking mall and the boardwalk - was perfect.
